Val should have been there a step sooner yes, but the double isn't a saving grace, it's to add another level of pressure to the pressure that's already coming from good individual man defense. Knowing the double should be there isn't a reason to soften up.
In demara defense, ALOT of players do that. I have seen Durant do that many times as well as lebron. Not saying its the right thing, just saying a lot of stars do it.
